A space-efficient representation of a Word8 vector, supporting many efficient operations. A ByteString contains 8-bit characters only.
Instances of Eq, Ord, Read, Show, Data, Typeable
A time and space-efficient implementation of byte vectors using packed Word8 arrays, suitable for high performance use, both in terms of large data quantities, or high speed requirements. Byte vectors are encoded as strict Word8 arrays of bytes, held in a ForeignPtr, and can be passed between C and Haskell with little effort.
This module is intended to be imported qualified, to avoid name clashes with Prelude functions. eg.
> import qualified Data.ByteString as B
Original GHC implementation by Bryan O'Sullivan. Rewritten to use UArray by Simon Marlow. Rewritten to support slices and use ForeignPtr by David Roundy. Polished and extended by Don Stewart.
This module provides access to the BSD socket interface. This module is generally more efficient than the String based network functions in Socket. For detailed documentation, consult your favorite POSIX socket reference. All functions communicate failures by converting the error number to IOError.
This module is made to be imported with Socket like so:
> import Network.Socket hiding (send, sendTo, recv, recvFrom)
> import Network.Socket.ByteString
POSIX support with ByteString file paths and environment strings.
This module exports exactly the same API as System.Posix, except that all file paths and environment strings are represented by ByteString instead of String. The System.Posix API implicitly translates all file paths and environment strings using the locale encoding, whereas this version of the API does no encoding or decoding and works directly in terms of raw bytes.
Note that if you do need to interpret file paths or environment strings as text, then some Unicode encoding or decoding should be applied first.
String-based POSIX directory support
Dynamic linker support through dlopen()
DLOpen support, old API Derived from GModule.chs by M.Weber & M.Chakravarty which is part of c2hs I left the API more or less the same, mostly the flags are different.
POSIX environment support
Functions defined by the POSIX standards for manipulating and querying the file system. Names of underlying POSIX functions are indicated whenever possible. A more complete documentation of the POSIX functions together with a more detailed description of different error conditions are usually available in the system's manual pages or from http://www.unix.org/version3/online.html (free registration required).
When a function that calls an underlying POSIX function fails, the errno code is converted to an IOError using errnoToIOError. For a list of which errno codes may be generated, consult the POSIX documentation for the underlying function.
POSIX IO support. These types and functions correspond to the unix functions open(2), close(2), etc. For more portable functions which are more like fopen(3) and friends from stdio.h, see System.IO.
POSIX process support. See also the System.Cmd and System.Process modules in the process package.
POSIX environment support
POSIX Terminal support
Make strict ByteStrings an instance of Stream with Char token type.
This provides ByteString instances for RegexMaker and RegexLike based on Text.Regex.Posix.Wrap, and a (RegexContext Regex ByteString ByteString) instance.
To use these instance, you would normally import Text.Regex.Posix. You only need to import this module to use the medium level API of the compile, regexec, and execute functions. All of these report error by returning Left values instead of undefined or error or fail.
The ByteString will only be passed to the library efficiently (as a pointer) if it ends in a NUL byte. Otherwise a temporary copy must be made with the 0 byte appended.
